Spy shots reveal facelift version of 2017 Skoda Superb

Skoda is expected to announce a new 2017 version of the Superb as a few spy shots have revealed a new facelift version of the sedan. The company had recently launched the new Superb so a new version would mean minor changes.

A few pictures of the test car show a reworked nose, a new front grille with a centre section and a smoother bumper. At the back everything seems to look the same but the camouflage leaves little to the imagination. The 2017 Skoda Superb is expected to feature a similar cabin and dash layout as the recently leaked Kodiaq with minor changes. The infotainment system will sit in a more plush display surround.

The current version of the Superb uses a four-wheel-drive system and a 276bhp powertrain of the Seat Leon Cupra 280. The new car might just use a turbocharged 2.0-litre unit of the Cupra 290, which produces 10bhp more, giving the new car 286bhp of power.

While we have no official confirmation from the Czech manufacturer about the official launch date, expect the new facelift version to arrive by early 2017. Skoda is also expected to launch its new SUV called the Kodiaq as a few teaser images were out in the open.
